Looks nice although the pincode can easily be compromissed by the neighbours with a binoculair ..... from a security standpoint a weak secure system - with a 4 digit code only 625 different possibilities

Also this lock is based on the American market - you need some serious carpenter work to fit it into a Dutch door.

It looks nice when you combine the Smartscan http://www.kwikset.com/SmartSeries/SmartScan.aspx

With a normal electric lock.

When you forget your key's or transmitter, you can still use your finger.

Another thing to consider with these keypads with soft plastic buttons (I think this lock has those as well) is that with heavy use it quickly becomes aparent which buttons are use for the pin. This because the numbers printed on the keys quickly start to fade/scratch/rub off.

you should change the code regular so all keys will show sign of wear ...but somebody can put powder on the keys and after opening the door by the homeowner check which keys has been used ... it will limit the number of possibilities. To prevent it wipe clean first all the keys ..
